At least until it breaks and the service crew comes flying in, hopping off a Lear Jet.

So, uhm, that keyboard is actually just a controller, with all the logic being in those modules?

I don't know, I've never seen the entire system like that. You always only see pics of the keyboard.

I'm well acquainted with someone who is about to feel like a GOD in that case! (and he'll have a loyal disciple in me :lol: )
The keyboard is not a controller - programming can be done from the front panel without the outboard gear. Once you get into the sampling side of it is when the outboard modules are needed. As the Sync II system developed, it was for editing of samples, their "Additive Resynthesis" program, a 32 track sequencer, SMPTE, etc, etc, etc.

Oh and yeah - it is a damn sexy looking beast.

The sexiest looking 'synth' has to be the one from the UK TV series 'Humans' (adapted from a Swedish series, I believe). Anyone seen it?
